My name is Steven Scheldeman, and I have been the driving force (and CEO) behind core-origins from the start.
Like many people working in ICT, I have come from somewhere else: philosophy, industrial design, mathematics. However, as luck would have it, I rolled into IT. First on an AS400 (IBM Series i), afterwards on a Mainframe (IBM Series z).
Soon, I found myself in a trainer position, and I have never looked back. I am – and probably always will be – an IT trainer.
Over the years, I trained a lot of people, talked to a lot of people, and the idea of my own company; core-origins; saw the light.
At core-origins we believe in putting our staff and clients first. Many companies talk about employee welfare, work life balance and many such other matters. But do they really believe in those? We have all worked for several teams and managers throughout our careers and come across various ethics, management styles and corporate behaviours.
At some point or other we were told about taking care of our mental health, correct posture and flexi time options; but how many times did we feel that it was just talk? The difference at core-origins is that we actually live those principles, it is not just a notion.
